The Trip Begins

We just left the WDSU parking lot in downtown New Orleans and have a long drive ahead of us. It’s 843 miles from here to the media hotel in Ft. Lauderdale, but we only have to trek 647 miles to get to tonight’s stopping point just outside Orlando. That should take about 10 hours, then we’ll get some rest and finish up the drive Wednesday morning. I’m shooting to be on the air doing something by Wednesday evening.

Our base of operations from Wednesday on is the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. This is pretty much ground zero for everything Super Bowl- related — parties, celebs, etc. We will have a set outside and invite anyone from the New Orleans area to come check out our broadcasts.

Bookmark this site and check back periodically. I have a lot of time to kill, so the blogging/video/pictures/tweets should be plentiful.

I’m traveling with WDSU videographer Steve Paretti. I’ll introduce you to him a little later.
